Despite the recent rain, California ended up with below normal rainfall in November 2014. Precipitation ranged from 82% of normal at Redding to 48% at Sacramento in northern California, 93% at San Jose to 37% in Fresno in central California and from 46% in Los Angeles to 37% in San Diego.
In terms of the droughtit is important to note, that even reaching "normal to date" rainfall for this season does not address the carry-over deficits from the past two seasons.
Temperatures were universally above normal, ranging from 1.8 above normal at Redding to 5.3 above normal at San Diego.
